A Toddy for the Body

This sure cure for a cold or whatever ails is a Southern favorite.

2-1/2 fl. oz. (5 Tbls.) bourbon
1 fl. oz. (2 Tbls.) honey (or your favorite sweetener)
3 small lemon wedges
3 whole cloves  (optional)

Boil water.  Put bourbon and honey in a coffee mug. Squeeze the juice from two wedges of lemon into the mug. Poke 3 holes in the rind of the remaining lemon wedge and push the cloves into the holes. Pour 4 fl. oz. (1/2 cup) boiling water into the mug and stir well to dissolve the honey. Add the clove-studded lemon wedge and let steep for a couple of minutes before drinking.
